Hillary Clinton´s $275K Speaking
Fee Comes with Diva Demands

Breitbart Big Journalism, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/17/2014 12:11:41 AM

Former Secretary of State and almost-certain 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton not only demanded $275,000 to speak at the University of Buffalo, her nine-page contract is filled with the kinds of demands that Pop Divas like Madonna are regularly mocked for. According to documents obtained by the Washington Post, on top of that mammoth speaking fee, Clinton´s contract demands……the university provide "a presidential glass panel teleprompter and a qualified operator," that Clinton´s office have "final approval" of her introducer and the moderator of any question-and-answer session, as well as "the sets, backdrops, banners, scenery, logos, settings, etc," and that the

#4, sorry for the imagery, but that ain´t a one-man job!!!!!!!!!!

Similar to Madonna or Mariah Carey´s ´riders´ on their contracts. Our own little Evita is all growed up now!

No press, no questions. Exactly like this Nobama ad, a takeoff on the 1984 Apple computer ad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53CFC1nctDE

I´m glad this has gone national...I graduated form The University of Buffalo in 1974 ( as a despised,greedy,Bu$ine$$ Major)...it has ALWAYS been a flaming left wing indoctrination center...and note that it took them EIGHT months to reluctantly release this info under a FOIA request from a local business newspaper.( Looks like they forgot to have THEIR hard drives crash??)

I´m guessing the left wing wackos that have always run UB consider this $275K a well-deserved gift... since poor Evita claims she was "dead broke"...because she and the sexual predator in chief sacrificed sooooo much for the country...and she wasn´t free to use her vast financial skills to invest it in cattle futures (bribery payoff)... and Whitewater (land scam)...and Casa Grande (looting of a savings bank)

This could easily become a zero (or worse) sum speech if 275,000, or more, of us demanded $1 each to listen and NOT post a negative or demeaning comment on five or more blogs.

In reality, this could become a referendum because 275K could easily be found in one major city. Nation wide, 2.75M would not be impossible.

A smile producing fantasy, for sure, but what fun it would be to create our own believable "Hillary" poll!

My favorite sentence was the description of the media slouching through the vetting of Hillary so that "..in 2016 they can dismiss Clinton scandals as old news and concentrate on clubbing the "sexist" Republican nominee to death like a baby seal."

That imagery is a perfect description of a presidential election in the 21st century United States.

The fee is outrageous for his hag, but she´s not making any unusual demands. No food or beverage requests. She wants her talk to be properly staged. That´s pretty common.

That means that it costs $275,000 for her to show up and read something to an audience.

Afloat on a tsunami of grift, the Clintons (and let´s not forget Al Gore), permanently in the sack with wealthy-but-not-too-wise rent seekers and rebellious trust fund radicals, have set unbeatable records for politically involved self-enrichment. That there are people who´ll hire Hillary! for $200-300K (plus diva expenses), or Bill from $500-1,000K, is either bile inducing or hilarious, depending on your reaction to mendacious flattery on a truly industrial scale. These speaking fees are essentially, bribery, legalized graft, mostly from academia, unions, bureaucrats, Greens, student activity funds. These are mostly greedy, politically clueless people who are themselves angling for political (financial) advantage.

If any politically ambitious Republican had himself (or herself) shown one-tenth the greed customarily practiced by the Clintons, he´d be the next swarming mass attack victim of the Beltway Hive. Your lefty credentials have to be in good order to rapidly amass a net worth of nine figures or dodge credible accusations of rape. That takes money, skill, and a philharmonic level of sheer brass.

As for the suckas who shell out the long lucre to the Bill, Hillary!, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation ... some people are too eager to please and to be pleased, to be a member of something. Idiots prefer the company of fellow idiots, all of them gulls on the beach waiting for someone to throw them bread crumbs. Don´t believe me? Turn over to MSNBC, the worst of a bad lot.

Hillary!´s soul is as cold and pitiless as northern Siberia. That laugh (that she can´t hide) might do her in by itself. Just watch.

House GOP pulls border bill
rather than see it defeated
Washington Post, by Robert Costa & Paul Kane    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/31/2014 2:11:31 PM     Post Reply
House Republicans pulled Speaker John A. Boehner’s slimmed-down legislation to address the brewing immigration crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border rather than see it defeated, amid a conservative revolt that the $659 million proposal did not address the core issues. Faced with certain defeat, Boehner (R-Ohio) pulled the legislation from consideration Thursday afternoon, according to guidance from leadership advisers. With more than 20 House conservatives opposed, Boehner did not have enough votes from his own Republican ranks because virtually all Democrats opposed the legislation. The resulting lack of action would end the congressional summer session in a familiar legislative failure, as

UPDATE: House Republicans have abandoned vote on border security bill in face of tea party opposition, the Associated Press reports. WASHINGTON — House Republicans moved toward a vote Thursday to address the immigration crisis on the border, after GOP leaders agreed to conservative demands for a separate vote aimed at blocking President Barack Obama from expanding deportation relief to millions. The surprise maneuver late Wednesday night appeared to be having the desired effect of locking down conservative lawmakers´ support for the $659 million bill to deal with the crisis involving tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors streaming into the U.S.

North Korean defectors and South Korean activists launched snack-filled balloons across the border into North Korea Wednesday. The balloons—containing cookies and Choco Pies, a popular chocolate snack–were launched from the border town of Paju in South Korea. The Choco Pies, distributed to workers at factories at the Kaesong Industrial Complex, a demilitarized zone, where both South and North Koreans work, were sold on the black market in North Korea and authorities in Pyongyang ordered the factory owners to stop handing them out.

In March, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) revealed that CIA Director John Brennan told her that the intelligence agency he leads had improperly accessed Senate computers and secretly removed classified documents while the agency’s War on Terror interrogation tactics were under investigation. Feinstein alleged that Brennan told her the CIA took that action because the agency believed the Senate might have accessed documents that they were not authorized to see. In a statement, Brennan said the Senate Intelligence Committee chairwoman had leveled “spurious allegations about CIA actions that were wholly unsupported by the facts.” While he confessed that the agency had

President Obama and Hillary Clinton will both be on Martha’s Vineyard next month at the same time, The Boston Globe reports. Clinton is scheduled to sign copies of her memoir Hard Choices at the Bunch of Grapes Bookstore in Vineyard Haven on Aug. 13. She’s considered the 2016 Democratic front-runner for president if she decides to enter the race. The trip by Clinton overlaps with Obama´s Aug. 9-23 vacation at Martha´s Vineyard. The bookstore appears to only be a 25-minute drive away from Chilmark, Mass., which is where the Obamas will be staying, according to Martha´s Vineyard Times. It’s unclear,

The shooting happened shortly before 10 a.m. in the offices of the ArrowStream company on the 17th floor of a building at 231 S. LaSalle St., police sources said. One of the victims, a 59-year-old executive of the company, was dead on the scene with a gunshot wound to the head, the sources said, citing preliminary information.

A thousand children said to be fleeing the violence in Central America will be welcomed to Chicago, where local children are routinely in the cross-fire of gang-related grudges. Mayor Rahm Emanuel, at the request of the Obama administration in which he formerly served, says he is working with local organizations to make room for up to one thousand additional unaccompanied children "traveling" from Central America to the U.S.-Mexico border in the coming year. “The influx of unaccompanied child migrants is a growing humanitarian crisis that we can no longer ignore,” said Mayor Rahm Emanuel. “While we have our own challenges

Still struggling to secure the votes to pass their border funding bill, House GOP leaders are discussing a way to add a provision that would bar the President from allowing any more deferments for children of undocumented workers in the U.S. now, according to a senior House GOP aide. The change to the 2012 Obama administration policy known as "DACA" has been pushed by conservative Sen. Ted Cruz, and a group of House Republicans has also pressed House leaders to add it to their $659 million border measure. Leaders are working out the mechanics for how the change would be

Like many on the right, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer is politically opposed to impeaching President Barack Obama. But on Tuesday, he declared that legally, the rumored White House order granting amnesty to as many as 6 million illegal immigrants “would be an impeachable offense” — and Obama’s talk of impeachment may be a way to preempt that pushback. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’s Bret Baier on a panel with The Hill’s A.B. Stoddard and Fox News contributor Juan Williams. The group discussed the impeachment buzz swirling around Washington, which most observers agree is being ginned up by Democrats eager for

Israel unleashed its heaviest bombardment in its three-week-old campaign against Hamas in Gaza on Tuesday as the Obama administration battled the growing perception among Israelis that Secretary of State John F. Kerry is a hapless bumbler in search of a cosmetic truce. Diplomatic efforts remained stalled despite a death toll that Palestinian officials said rose above 1,200 on Tuesday. The shadowy leader of the Hamas military wing said his group will not cease fire until an economic embargo is ended and other demands are met. After his latest round of mediation failed to achieve a cease-fire, Mr. Kerry has been

President Obama demanded that Israel agree to a one-sided cease-fire during a heated phone conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to a report aired on Israeli TV Tuesday. Both leaders quickly denounced the purported transcript of their private discussion as fake. But the TV channel that obtained it, state-run Channel 1, stood by its account. In one bitter exchange, Obama declared that Qatar and Turkey — Hamas’ biggest international supporters — would mediate with the terrorists on Israel’s behalf, according to the TV channel. “I trust Qatar and Turkey. Israel is not in the position that it can choose its mediators,” the president

Inside Hoboken’s combined junior-senior high school is a storage closet. Behind the locked door, some mothballed laptop computers are strewn among brown cardboard boxes. Others are stacked one atop another. Dozens more are stored on mobile computer carts, many of them on their last legs.
